Having laws protecting people from discrimination isn't persecuting you. Allowing homosexuals to marry in no way persecutes the minority of Christians who disagree with it. Thankfully the majority of Americans are sick of the hatred and vitriol spewed by Gina Miller, Westboro Baptist Church and others of their ilk. No longer will they be given free reign to impose their religious dogma on others.
Hopefully it will make it's way out of moderation soon.
